As it’s the end of January I thought it was time for me to do my January favorites. I honestly can’t believe that it’s almost February. This month really did fly by. I think I have a pretty good mix of things this month, so le’s get into it. So starting with beauty, my first favorite is a product I talked about in my Glam Bag post, which I’ll link below, so I’m not going to get too much into it. But it’s the 3 in 1 highlighter/bronzer/eye shadow in Fantasy from Manna Kadar Beauty. I’ve been using it regularly since I unboxed it and I’m still loving it. The color is great and I recommend it. And it does look funny in the picture because I dropped it..
The next favorite is also from my January Glam Bag, but when I posted that I hadn’t had a chance to use it. But it’s a nail polish from Pretty Woman NYC in the shade I’m Not A Ballerina. I’m going to be honest with you guys, I’m so in love with this polish. From the color to the staying power, it’s great nail polish. The formulation is great and it pretty much does what it says on the box. Fast-drying, long-lasting, and resists chipping, cracking, fading and peeling for up to ten days. I can definitely see myself reaching for this a lot come spring and summer and the next time I’m looking for nail polish I will be browsing the Pretty Woman NYC website.
So keeping with the nail polish theme, my next favorite is from Sally Hansen in the Complete Salon Manicure range and it’s in the shade 581, Black and Blue. So basically for Christmas my friend Aimee gifted me with some nail polish and tools to create fun manicures and this is one of them. One of the things I like about this is how it changes depending on the light that’s hitting it and ultimately it’s really pretty. It almost in certain lights reminds me of a Sephora nail polish, I think it was Sephora x OPI in Mermaid To Order, which I really liked.
So my last nail polish themed item is also from Sally Hansen and it’s the Big Matte Top Coat. In the past I haven’t always liked matte nails but I’ve used this a couple of times and I like it a lot. In my opinion it’s one of the better matte top coats.
My last beauty favorite is something I talked about in my What I got for Christmas post, which I’ll link below, and that is the Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar 24 hour moisture ultra shea body lotion. This is one of my favorite lotions, it makes my skin so incredibly soft and if you don’t like this scent I would recommend any of the Bath and Body Works lotions.
So moving on to fashion, my first favorite is a pair of earrings. What I like about these earrings is the simple elegance. The gold with the intricate pattern in the center adds a lot of detail and they are incredibly light weight which I appreciate.
My next favorite is a shirt that I’m kind of obsessed with. It’s a nice blush pink with a crochet detail on the front and I can’t wait until the warmer months so I can wear this.
And my last fashion favorite is the slippers I got for Christmas. I’ve pretty much been wearing them non stop since I got them because it’s been freezing and they keep my feet so warm.
My next favorite is a music favorite and it’s a ukulele. I think that I’ve mentioned before that I’ve always been musical. I sing, I can kind of play the piano and I’ve been talking about wanting to play the ukulele for a few years so I’m super excited to learn. This ukulele is gorgeous and it has a great sound. It’s from Kala Brand Music Co. and I would recommend checking them out if you’re in the market for a ukulele.
To go with the ukulele I have the Absolute Beginners Ukulele by Steven Sproat. It comes with a CD to play along with, which I find super helpful. I can read music but sometimes it’s helpful to play by sound alone.
My next favorite is a food and drink favorite. Something that I absolutely love is tea. And specifically Pure Leaf tea. My favorite is the Sweet Tea. What I like about this brand is it tastes great and there’s only a few ingredients so you know what you’re drinking which is nice.
And finally, my last favorite I know I’ve talked about before, but it’s the IMSA racing series. Next to the NHRA, which I will be blogging about once the season starts, IMSA is my favorite series. They kicked off their season over the weekend with the Rolex 24 (24 Hours of Daytona) and from start to finish it was an incredible race. It made me really excited for the rest of the season because I know it’s going to be good.
That about wraps it up for this post. I’ll probably do another favorites post next month, but we’ll see. If you guys have any of the same favorites let me know and if not let me know what your January favorites are.
Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a good January :).
